  • Blender/food processor
  • Electric whisk


  • 5.3 oz / 150g Dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1 can/tin White beans/cannellini 400ml / 14oz


  • Melt most of the chocolate in a bowl over hot water, leave enough chocolate to grate for a topping.
  • Pour the beans into a sieve with a bowl below to catch all the bean juice.
  • Whisk the bean juice with an electronic whisk for a few minutes while the chocolate melts.
  • Add the beans, and maple syrup to the melted chocolate and blend together in a jug blender or food processor. You may have to scrape down the sides several times.
  • Continue to whisk the bean juice (AKA aquafaba) until stiff peaks are formed, this takes about 8-10 mins in total with an electric whisk.
  • Stiff peaks are when you can turn the bowl upside down and the mixture doesn’t move. With aquafaba you don’t need to worry about over-whisking.
  • Fold the chocolate bean mixture into the aquafaba then pour it into 4 small glass dishes.
  • Chill for an hour then sprinkle the mousse with grated chocolate.
  • Keep the protein mousse in the fridge and enjoy within 3 days.
